Uh-huh. Thing is, I haven't seen the ebay listing, and as I can't remember my password, I can't find 'completed items'.

There are three or four other loose sheets, one full A4 running to both sides. I only posted this jotting because (although obviously not) it looks vaguely Tolkien-esque in style. However, it clearly isn't Michael's handwriting; & the notes are not in the copy marked as (possibly) from Christopher. Although the other copy is also a Michael bookplate copy. Garm, the books are just the two in the eBay listing...

Fascinating - and, no! I didn't see the listing... (goshdarn it). What other books did you buy, may I ask?

As for the bookplate - I guess the monogram could read 'C.J.R.T. ' - though I've never seen one like it.

I have a couple of examples of Michael Hilary's handwriting. They don't look like the jottings you've shown here. Whose are they? I don't know. possibly Christopher's? Or possibly the jottings of Michael George Tolkien, JRRT's grandson? As I say; fascinating stuff!
